One year ago, President Trump announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. But Trump’s attempt to abdicate American global leadership has only strengthened the international commitment to fight climate change. There are more countries in the agreement and acting on climate today than one year ago. Around the world, the building of new renewable energy capacity continues to outpace new fossil fuel power plants, and electric vehicles are poised for major growth. And the number of U.S. cities, businesses, and universities that have reaffirmed their commitment to climate action is in the thousands—and rising. Plus, powerful new initiatives are being introduced, such as former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge, which commits tens of millions of dollars for 20 of the 100 most populous U.S. cities to tackle climate change.
